# SceneInspector

The* SceneInspector* is a software environment for the definition, execution and maintenance of multistage stochastic simulations (so called "Incremental Probabilistic Simulation").

- Purpose
- Features
- Architecture

Stochastic simulation can either be used for the explorative analysis of complex systems as well as for the quantitative calculation of probability distributions in nonlinear systems. The *SceneInspector* can do both in common. Hereby *SceneInspector* delivers the fundamental data sets for the development, calibration, and safeguarding of control algorithms for complex systems.

That way the *SceneInspector* is the basic tool for

- example based requirements definition respectively usecase based specification of functions respectively scenario based approaches,
- the calculation of probabilistic decision variables like risks, danger levels, collision probability, traffic qualities, traffic jam probability, nonlinear stability measures,...
- the development of "intelligent" control algorithms with Bayesian approaches,
- the simulation based calibration of virtual sensors,
- the experimental design with the identification of the relevant and reproducible test cases,
- the robustness assessment and functional validation of complex systems.

- Comprehensive scenario management
- Definition and execution of multi-level stochastic simulation for the sub-simulation of different assumption
- Partially automated generation of scenarios
- Simulation manager for the execution of distributed simulation at a workstation cluster
- Integration of various simulation systems
- vehicle dynamic simulations
- traffic simulations
- micro simulations
- macro simulations

- product simulation
- ...

The * SceneInspector* is a MATLAB Toolbox, which controls other simulation programs by their external interface.

For scenario sampling the *SceneInspector* requires the *Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox* from The Mathworks Inc.
